For best results please send us PDF files due to these files having a smaller physical size in megabytes and allowing faster downloads from FTP sites and email attachments. They also combine images and fonts in one file.
Please create the file at 10% of the final size. You can also send it at 25 or 50% but please make us aware of this when you send it over. Always include bleed if required but remember to offset crop marks as they will print unless removed. Please also outline the text in your file or send us your artwork as a vector file.
When creating, export to PDF using the Press Quality setting. If using Illustrator or Photoshop you can choose to save as a PDF with the Press Quality setting or alternatively save as an EPS file. If you save as an EPS file be sure to make a clipping mask around you artwork (Bleed area) to eliminate any stray artwork outside of the bleed area. Please do not supply Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Publisher, CAD or similar file formats.
Crowd control barrier dimensions can vary. Typically, they are either 2.30m or 2.50m wide and 1.10m high. However, it’s important to note that the actual dimensions can differ significantly in width due to variations in how manufacturers include or exclude hooks in the measurements.
Before applying branding to your crowd control barriers, it is crucial to check with your supplier for the precise dimensions. If you plan to use the skins branding option for multiple events, ensure that you will receive the same barriers consistently.
In addition to our barrier skins, we offer a diverse range of crowd barrier branding solutions to meet various requirements.
The lead times for our products depend on the time of year and the workload of our production team at the time of your inquiry. On average, our lead times are 5-7 working days from the placement of the order. However, please note that our screen-printing service and printed Austronet may require a slightly longer lead time, typically ranging from approximately 10-21 working days.
The standard size for a Heras Fence panel is 3.5m x 1.8m, resulting in a branding area of 3.37m x 1.78m.
Screen Print should be considered for larger volume print runs, such as when you are working on an event that has many cordoned off areas and like a festival, a large construction site or a sports event. The process is best used for repeat artwork, be it a logo, sponsors message or tiled background image. The process of creating the screens is initially quite costly, but the costs of producing prints diminishes significantly as the volume increases. This is because once a screen is produced material can be passed through the print process many times quicker than with the digital print process. Screen printing works by stamping colour down on the fabric, a single screen can be up to 600 x 200cm, and up to 12 screens can be combined to create complex artwork.
Key Benefits of screen print:
- Air-permeable, elastic and durable
- Cost effective
- Spot colours can be matched accurately
- Colour Fast – post print washing process increases resistant to colour bleed

If your prints require special colours to be matched please include them in the file as spot colours, either Pantone or RAL can be matched closely on our machines although there are limitations with some colours, notably fluorescents and brighter Pantones. You can also supply us with hard copies of previously printed materials that we can use as a reference. If we think that the colour is not possible to match we will inform you first and recommend a series of colour test prints for you to approve.
